Chuang on China, Communism, and Social Contagion

 Today, Kyle and Sean are joined by our friends at Charles Kerr Publishing and The Antifada Podcast to bring you a special interview with Chuang, an anonymous, international research group composing a new analysis of the formal and historical development of China. Chuang has just released a much anticipated collection of essays focusing on the 'China experience' of the covid-19 pandemic and its convergent crises. The book, Social Contagion and other material on microbiological class war in China, is out now with Charles Kerr Publishing Co. and available at akpress.
